SolarWinds Showcases IT Management Portfolio at NIAS Cyber Security Symposium 2016 and Public IT Security 2016

Solarwinds Invites Attendees to Join Mav Turner, SolarWinds Senior Director of Product Strategy, in an Interactive Workshop on Best Practices for Monitoring and Managing Cybersecurity Threats at NIAS

CORK, IRELAND--(Marketwired - August 31, 2016) - SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced its upcoming participation in NIAS Cyber Security Symposium 2016 and Public IT Security 2016 running September 7-8, 2016 at the Lotto Mons Expo in Belgium and September 13-14, 2016 at Hotel Adlon in Berlin, respectively. At the events, SolarWinds will provide in-booth product demonstrations, discuss how its solutions can help eliminate complexity in national government, NATO, and military infrastructure and will present on best practices for monitoring and managing cybersecurity threats, both internal and external.

"We're looking forward to presenting at NIAS 2016 on 'How to Fight Cybersecurity Threats on Multiple Fronts' -- a concern we know many IT pros face today," said David Kimball, group vice president, federal and national government, SolarWinds. "Government IT has long been focused on external cybersecurity threats and continues to apply the bulk of their resources -- both bandwidth and budget -- to defending against attacks from the outside. However, agency insiders can be equally damaging as external attackers, with human error one of the most common IT security threats, followed by abuse of privileges, and theft. SolarWinds sees NIAS as an opportunity to offer insight to help government agencies safeguard against both external and insider threats, and quickly identify and fix vulnerabilities."
